Malts of Scotland

Laphroaig 1998/2011 Malts of Scotland

September 29, 2011

This Laphroaig is a bit on the sweet side which complements the smoke and spice very nicely. – Rating: 86/100

Clynelish 1996/2009 Malts of Scotland

September 27, 2011

An excellent fruity sherry dram with just the right amount of spice. This is a perfect drink-by-the-drop malt. – Rating: 86/100

Glenglassaugh 1984/2009 Malts of Scotland

September 26, 2011

The richness of the nose is not quite matched by the palate, but the finish again is sensational. Another very fine example of the old Glenglassaugh sherry monsters. – Rating: 87/100

Glengoyne 1972/2009 Malts of Scotland

December 13, 2010

Extremely complex and richly-flavoured, this is a terrific fruity luxury digestive to enjoy after your Christmas dinner. – Rating: 91/100

Laphroaig 1996/2010 Malts of Scotland

December 8, 2010

This is a very unusual Laphroaig as it displays almost none of the medicinal notes that the distillery is so well known for. But it’s a very high quality malt with a lot going on in the nose and on the palate. – Rating: 89/100

Westport 2000/2010 Malts of Scotland

July 26, 2010

A very rich first fill sherry malt that gives the impression of being older than ten. Very delightful at a very reasonable price. – Rating: 84/100

Glengoyne 1998/2009 Malts of Scotland

April 19, 2010

This whisky has a “million dollar nose” suggesting a very rich sherry bomb. But the palate does not quite meet the expectations raised by the nose as it lacks complexity. – Score: 83/100

Benrinnes 1988/2009 Malts of Scotland

November 27, 2009

I quite like the taste, only the finish is a bit strange. – Score: 84/100
